So where are all the unaccountable councillors now?

They seem to be so visible and helpfully influential when they are looking to be elected or they have just squandered another couple of dozen homes worth of your and my council tax on a completely irrelevant load of galvanised trees outside Sainsbury’s.

But where are they now?

In times past, we elected the council, they appointed the council staff – the staff were accountable to the council and the council were accountable to us.

Alas no longer:
Now, The councillors promise the earth, we are gullible enough to believe them, they set up a shonky, third-party unaccountable gang of nepotistic mates, they cock the job up – we complain, the council tell us; ‘it aint us it was, Solutions SK / NPS / The Sports Tryst’, or one of the many groups that we can now pretend not to own, but probably do!

Democracy – it’s a gift from God (or was it the other guy?)
